Simply Grilled Shrimp

Sometimes I just want a salad for dinner. Sean says that’s not a meal. To keep him happy (and who am I kidding, I love this shrimp, too), I’ll throw these lil’ guys in a pan and then place them on the side of the salad I’m serving.

Time: 5 – 15 minutes

Type: Side


  • 1/2 lb shrimp (I usually do frozen from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat up olive oil on a nonstick skillet at medium-high heat. Pat shrimp dry.
  2. Once hot, put shrimp and garlic in the skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Flip shrimp after 2-3 minutes (or once shrimp is starting to turn pink). Let cook for another 2 or so minutes on the other side.
  4. Serve!
